Now, this isn't a wild pig, but is the future cash income from one of the villagers down the road. We know how to deal with wandering dogs, cats, iguanas, etc. But how do you deal with a hog on walkabout? Do you simply pass him? Nope. When we resumed walking, Mr. Pig faced us and grunted what we thought was perhaps an aggressive warning. After a minute of our pig versus humans stand-off, Mr. Pig turned towards the village down the road and trotted off.
Unfortunately, that was the same direction we were walking - going back to the marina and the boat. So we dropped our pace and followed him at a safe distance until he turned into a family compound and mingled among the barefoot children, skinny dogs, and chickens.
Earlier in the day, my new young friend Gia and I made a visit to the pig while he was being prepared in the kitchen. Looks like the head isn't included in these pig roasts like they are in Hawaii for the luau pigs. Gia wondered where his head went. He was beheaded! But still a lovely pig don't you think?
So, villagers please keep growing these creatures for us and we'll do our best not to disturb them while they forage.
I'm hungry... and so not "oooh that animal looks delicious" person, but the thought of the cooked food sounds really, really good right now.
Ohhh, roast pig!!! I haven't had it like that in 30+ years. It is so juicy and succulent. Next time, enjoy some for me, please.Post a Comment
